Metro Boomin’s mother was murdered by her husband before he committed suicide this weekend, according to TMZ.
According to other reports, the murderer was her boyfriend.
The news was first reported by multiple outlets on Sunday before being confirmed by TMZ, which reveals that authorities discovered Metro’s mother, Leslie Wayne body,’s outside of the Atlanta area.
Wayne was reportedly murdered over the weekend by her husband, who was not Metro’s father, before committing suicide.
Wayne raised Metro and his three siblings and was an early supporter of his music.
On his mother’s birthday in 2019, the super-producer called her his “biggest inspiration” while holding a birthday purse in the passenger seat of a car.
When his career began, Wayne would drive her son from St. Louis to Atlanta for eight hours to help him achieve his musical goals.
Metro recently came out in support of YSL following the RICO charges, which resulted in 28 people being charged in a 56-count indictment, including Young Thug and Gunna. Metro denied prosecutors’ claims that the label was a gang and expressed dissatisfaction with lyrics and music being used as criminal evidence.
Lame af and a joke, using song lyrics to convict n****s. When these firms have generated billions of dollars over the previous decade, they’ve been using these lyrics, he wrote. It will be interesting to watch who steps up now that the coin has turned and uses those same resources… Are you going to just walk away as Interscope did with Pac in 1995 and leave him in peace?
Metro has yet to share a statement on the reported death of his mother. We extend our thoughts to him and his family at this time.
